Grid Redstone.png  Function fs.getSize
Gets the size of a file in bytes. Returns based on the contents of the file - if "file.txt" contains 29 bytes of data, then fs.getSize("file.txt") simply returns the number 29.

Earlier versions of ComputerCraft returned the filesize plus the string length of the filename - for example, if "file.txt" contains 1000 bytes of data, then fs.getSize("file.txt") returns 1000 + #"file.txt" = 1008. Furthermore, if the value would be lower than 512, then 512 was returned instead. These behaviours were discarded somewhere between CC 1.53 and CC 1.57.
